The Holy Family have revealed their second single - a haunting, fog-draped voyage of kosmische polyrhythms and psych folk wonder called 'St Anthony's Fire'.
The track is taken from their self-titled debut album which is released on 2 July 2021. Watch the incredible John O'Carroll made video for the track above.
The band have also announced a very special album launch party that with take place on the day of release, 2nd July at The Servants Jazz Quarters in Dalston, London. There will be a full album playback plus a special DJ set from Kavus Torabi and Steve Davis. Things kick off at 7pm and the event is free (poster below) – and rest assured, full COVID safety measures will be in place, following Government guidelines.
The album is released on ltd edition 2xLP and CD. We have sold out of the frosted clear edition, but there is a grey vinyl version available to preorder from your local record shops now. You can also preorder the ltd edition CD from here: Bandcamp
The scope of The Holy Family - an auditory Rorschach test across thirteen tracks rich in adventure and intrigue - is boundless. It’s an intrepid voyage through sound-worlds that takes in all manner of incarnations, as spidery zeuhl, oceanic kosmische, blissful pastoral and celluloid-score tension are visited here in search of some greater universal truth. Yet all of these stylistic forays are married with relentless dream logic into one unifying kaleidoscopic vision.
Mercurial and mystical yet charged with primal energy, this is a classic double album as forum for chimerical experimentation - shifting in form and structure every time it travels from the record racks to the stereo, and revealing yet more psychic landscapes with each listen.
Submit to its spell, and join The Holy Family.
